The Common Feature Among All Living Beings

What is pain?

Is it a feeling? (If so, what is a feeling?) Is it absolute? What makes it different between us, a crocodile, a tree, a microbe? Does a microbe really feel pain?

Is pain really a good thing or a bad thing?

I think one thing common among all creatures is the pain. Whether it is a feeling or inter-cellular reaction chemical reaction or inner-cellular or whatever. It seems to be existent among all living beings.

It is the sense of pain that causes a living being to continue living. I am definitely sure of myself that I didn't feel pain, I wouldn't have lived until now.
